4.0 out of 5 stars Not a typical Tamora Pierce, 3 Feb. 2010
By 
This review is from: Terrier (Beka Cooper) (Paperback)
After reading reviews about 'Terrier' I wasn't completely convinced whether or not to buy it. It's not normal for a Tamora Pierce book to be set as a diary - I'm so used to 3rd person from her, and I wasn't convinced it would work as well.

As it happens, Pierce can write in 1st person just as well as 3rd, which was just as well since I'd bought it. This is probably one of her books that I like the least, but that's only because there's not much that can compare to the Alanna the Lioness series. 'Terrier' is closer to 'Trickster's Choice' in the plotline (that's a seriously awesome book by the way), in that it doesn't have the 'epic' fantasy style of writing in Alanna. It's more based on seemingly smaller events that lead up to bigger ones. I also get the feeling that when I get round to reading the others, more seemingly insignificant events will come together in unexpected ways. That's just how Tamora Pierce writes - it means that the series gets better as you go along though.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy or adventure books, but it's best if you've read some of the other Tortallan books as well.
